Thanks to Poplicks and O-Dub for this one:

Your political compass

Economic Left/Right: -4.12
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.97

Huh.

Same quadrant as Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, and the Dalai Lama.

No wonder I haven't gone in on the caucus handicapping that's been going around like the virus I'm fighting. Nobody appeals to me...and, most likely, no one in our political system as it is now ever will.

You might want to try the test here, as well:

We're close.
I t'ought I saw you over the holidays but wasn't sure enough to accost anyone over it don't'cha know. In the bywater near Coffea?
Came to town for a great week through the New Year and left sadly uplifted by the City's progress. Sad to go is all, and as always impressed with how much further along you all have come on the Road Ho Express.
New Orleans remains one of the finest places ever to hide from the Fat Man in da'sky.
Next stop~Krewe du Vieux!!!

Heh. I'm right on Robert Redford in the same quadrant as you, Ashley.

And, as for seeing me in the Bywater, I ain't been nowhere near there since the Mirliton Festival. And we do seem to be holding our own against the delays and pitfalls of the Winding Goat Path Home Through the Himalayas.

Sorry I missed you, Bruce. Be well, and Happy New Year!

It won't surprise anyone that I about as libertarian as you are but more to the right.

I doubt that anyone will care that many of the questions are so loaded as to be devoid of any value.

Leigh C. said...

The questions are, indeed, loaded. Circumstances need to be added. It's impossible to keep the bias out of ANY political questions, I think.

Off topic, but thanks for the Chris Rock quotation over at YRHT. It made my morning!

Leigh C. said...

It's so sad, funny, and true.

For those too lazy to check the latest YRHT post:

"It's ready for a retarded president, why wouldn't it be ready for an African American president?"

- Chris Rock, upon being asked whether this country is ready for an African American president

Right there with you. Humm..

Sophmom said...

LMAO at the Chris Rock quote. Exactly. As for the quiz, it was a little like taking a personality test wherein they learn as much about you by how you choose to navigate the no right answers as by what you actually answer (i.e., the MMPI). I was down almost in the corner:

Your political compass
Economic Left/Right: -6.50
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -7.95

The older I get, the less patient and thus more revolutionary I've become.

I'm sorry you've not been feeling well and hope you're feeling better. I felt like I was trying to come down with something the whole time I was there but I had the best time anyway. It's turned out to be a gentle cold, as those things go and I'm doing better. Massive doses of antihistamines and decongestants have helped. Maybe the Zicam made a difference?

Happy New Year, darlin'. Here, I've gone long again.

My throat's still kinda raw, which is what I'm worried about the most, because I've had bronchitis so many damn times. I'm also having big problems keeping warm. This weather here is really ticking me off.

If Obama gets the nomination, I nominate Chris Rock as his running mate.

I'm about the same place. Too bad Kucinich has all the chances of Satan skating to work.

Of the options available, and prior to massive research, I find Obama encouraging.
